RICHMOND, Va. — You’ve heard about the American Revolution, but what about the American Evolution?
A multi-million dollar campaign launched Wednesday to celebrate the 2019 Commemoration of 400 years of Virginia History. It was created by the Virginia General Assembly under the brand “American Evolution.”
The executive director of the program, Kathy Spangler, says there’s “no question” that what happened in 1619 influences us today.
“Virginia’s history is America’s history and what happened here…has affected each and every one of us across this great land,” she said.
